About the Blue Pearl Software Suite for FPGA RTL Signoff
The Blue Pearl Software Suite works with the Xilinx Vivado Design Suite running on Windows platforms. It includes linting, CDC analysis and automatic SDC generation. Its generated SDCs drive the efficiency of the synthesis and place and route phases of FPGA design implementation, and reduce iterations and overall design time. Its Visual Verification Environment™ makes it easy to use.

The company's collaboration with Synopsys offers an optimized flow that works with Synopsys' Synplify Pro FPGA synthesis software. Verilog, VHDL and SystemVerilog designers can automatically generate an exhaustive set of constraints that address false and multi-cycle paths that are compatible with Synopsys' synthesis flow.

About Blue Pearl Software
Blue Pearl Software, Inc. provides EDA software that accelerates RTL signoff for FPGA designs. The company's Blue Pearl Software Suite checks RTL designs for functional errors and automatically generates comprehensive and accurate Synopsys Design Constraints (SDC) to improve quality of results (QoR) and reduce FPGA design risks.
